BioPilotsUK is a collaboration created by five established biorefining open-access centres who recognise the importance of partnerships to develop UK bio-based value chains. Together, we de-risk the commercialisation of bio-based products and processes by trialling new technologies to ensure our partners are investing in the right technologies for their business.

The vision of BioPilotsUK is the UK as a global leader in biorefining technology development and bio-based product manufacture within a sustainable high-value bioeconomy.

The mission of BioPilots UK is:

  • Provide a stable, integrated, cost-effective pilot and process development service linked to the higher education (HE) sector for the benefit of bio-based industries and the bioeconomy.
  • Work collectively and internationally to increase knowledge and capabilities in biorefining and industrial biotechnology (IB).
  • Nurture the development of SMEs and larger companies to support the growth of bio-based value chains.
